Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station
Arguably the most remote inhabited place on earth, scientists who work on the site must endure 6 months of daylight followed by 6 months of night. So just one long day!
Sitting 9,301 feet above sea level, temperatures can drop as low as −73 °C (−100 °F). It is named after polar explorers Roald Amundsen and Robert F. Scott, the two men who led the first two successful polar expeditions to the South Pole.
Constructed in 1956, it has been continuously inhabited with up to 200 scientists in the summer months and as low as 50 in the winter.
